RE: refereeing, I do think the Pens get some BoD because they are the two-time defending champions.

They have a reputation for tying up sticks in the high traffic areas and I think they use that to really tie up some sticks.

It is not why the Flyer trail 2-1 though.  

The Pens pursue the puck relentlessly, they speed up the opponent's decision making. They take away time and play in your triangle, they play an admirable game.

Add in 3 legitimate superstars the food truck guy and several very good role players who fit the style,( Hagelien and Hornquist come to mind). One sees why they are the defending champs. 

The Flyers don't have enough skill 1-12 to take advantage of the Pens d corps which can be had.  Doumulin has played above what I remember his defensive abilities to be so far, a team like Tampa should they make it past Boston stand a better chance of getting to the Pens D and keeping the 87 and 71 playing in the defensive zone.

i've said this other places in the forum.  I didn't expect playoff hockey from our guys this year, we drew the Pens who are healthy to start the playoffs.  Our guys are a year ahead of schedule and guys like TK and Patty are looking like they like playoff hockey. Things could be worse, we could be Rangers fans.

On Couturier...

Was just told the Flyers Sean Couturier, who is averaging almost 25 minutes a game in the series so far, just left the ice during practice, after taking a big open ice hit...He was limping. Will update in this blog if info becomes available...The Flyers and Penguins series resumes tomorrow night...

Damn. Certainly didn't look good.

 

Effin Gudas won't throw a check on a Penguin but takes his own player out, i'm not sure why he wasn't looking at were he was going i mean i guess i should Coots had the puck!!!!!!

Is that something official?  I hate that lineup.   I don't like Simmonds with Patrick.  I don't like Konecny on the wrong side for no particular reason.  I don't like Jordan Weal.  I don't like Weal playing ahead of Lindblom.  I don't like Laughton on the wing.  I don't like Hakstol.   

 

I do like Rice Krispie Treats.   On the 8th day, God created Rice Krispie Treats.

Just the only report i have seen so far. I'm not crazy about it either.

 

Patrick was on the 1st line with Coots out.

 

I would like a 2nd line of Lindblom Patrick and Konecny.

      "The example above was the most significant and ultimately affected the game (imo)"   Believe whatever you want.  The difference in the game came down to goal tending.  Murray won that game in the first period when the Flyers were all over the Pens.

        The regular season is 82 games long. Guys take shifts off....guys take games off. On every team. Did Pittsburgh play 82 games like they did last night? No.     Pittsburgh ended up 2 points ahead of Philly. Did that look like a team ONE game better over an 82 game sched?  Not to me...that looked like a playoff ready team. Philly looked like it was game 4 of the regular season. Laughton scored 10 goals in the regular season. Hagelin scored 10. I don't see a "superior" scorer there. ONE of them couldn't score in a wide open net last night.   My guess is he was probably gripping his stick a little too tight last night. FOUR career playoff games (including last night) might have had a bearing on that.    I'm not arguing the two teams are equal here....I didn't expect playoffs this year. The Pens are better...but they're also comfortable in playoff hockey. They KNOW the grind. There's a lot of Flyers who either forget...or don't know it at all.

        The good news - really, the *only* good news lol - is that whether we lose by 1 or by a touchdown, it's still just 0-1 in the series.    And even if we go 0-2, it's still completely under control until we lose one at home, right?   Trying really hard to find a silver lining haha!
